Sen. Josh Hawley (R-MO) says he has been approached by a Facebook whistleblower who alleges coordination between Facebook, Google, and Twitter to suppress and censor their platforms.
Hawley announced via his Twitter account that the whistleblower has provided him with evidence of the alleged coordination, and that he will question Twitter’s Jack Dorsey and Facebook’s Mark Zuckerberg about it at a hearing of the Senate Judiciary Committee tomorrow, where both CEOs will testify.
